To improve food security, one of the options is to strengthen self-sufficiency in domestic food production. These efforts face a challenge especially from the alarming rate of agriculture area conversion into infrastructure development that reached 96,500 ha/year. Meanwhile, the national government can only generate new croplands of 20,000-30,000 ha/year.
